The painting titled, “The Curse of Macbeth,” depicts a scene from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It shows the moment where Macbeth first see the dagger and decides to betray and kill his father. His guilt later consumes him and ultimately brings about his own death. The ambiguous story of Macbeth can be taken as a supernatural themed tale beginning with three witches reciting, “Double, double toil and trouble,” while predicting his fate, or as a moral lesson about the cause and effect of one’s owns actions. The curse of Macbeth is also a well-known superstition in the theater world, about the unfortunate events that seems to plague every theater that attempts to perform the play of Macbeth.

While the night's performance prepares to start, an eager crowd rumbles with the excited murmurs of anticipation. “Our Stories on Stage” is a collection of oil paintings created by Joshua Moore that are inspired by the performing arts. Elements of popular theater themes, backstage superstitions, classical music, and traditional clothing make up the paintings in the collection that embody theater, music, and cultural dance.

Joshua Moore collaborated with his sister, Liz Goodall, to help create the theatrical scenes in his paintings. Goodall is an award-winning costume designer from Meadowbrook Theater, the largest production in Michigan, who specializes in historical clothing. Goodall began her career making elaborate dresses for the Michigan Renaissance festival while pursuing a BA in Theatre from Michigan State University and then an MFA in Costume Design from Wayne State University.
